burial at sea | ash scattering services | san diegoThe ocean has been enjoyed, loved, and respected by generations of mariners, fishermen, surfers, divers, military and, most recently, families of individuals spanning every age. 

This attraction to the sea, for some, is more than just a fleeting feeling; it's more of a deep and profound "calling" that is rarely understood by those who do not have it, but rather simply tolerate their loved one or family member who can not stay away from the ocean.  They live for it, and the ocean lives for them. Many times these same individuals have a strong desire to be put to rest at sea, to have their ashes scattered over the face of the ocean and to at last, become one with their first and eternal love... the sea.

Attempts to get family and friends together for spreading ashes at sea may prove to be impossible. 

For others, they simply cannot bring themselves to do it.  Special arrangements, complete with videotaping of the actual ash scattering at sea can be made and done for you on your behalf.

burial at sea | ash scattering services | san diegoAn increasing number of people are choosing spreading ashes at sea for a variety of reasons. Not only is it significantly less expensive, rich in nautical background and is an eco friendly alternative to traditional land funerals, but is a peaceful way of saying good bye set against a beautiful backdrop of sea and sky.

Our ash scattering at sea ceremonies are performed from a variety of locations off the San Diego Coast such as the Cabrillo Monument, Point Loma, Sunset Cliffs, and Coronado Island.

Currently approximately 46% of people would choose cremations and many of them choose to scatter the remains in some manner over water. Burial at sea is common if the deceased enjoyed the outdoors and the water. Perhaps they loved boating or some other aspect of the aquatic environment.

It is also possible to perform a burial at sea with no remains. This can be done when it is not possible to retrieve remains - in the case of a disaster where no body is found. A service can be performed and a memorial or flowers placed in the water. Although not strictly a burial at sea, it does provide the family and friends with a form of closure to aid in the grieving process.

Burial at Sea San Diego captains are licensed and insured by the state of California, so you can be 100% confident during your ceremony. PacificaSailingCharters@gmail.com
